Dear ones,
Tooth brushes should not be kept near a toilet, the airborne particles from a flush can travel upto 6 ft so it can easily contaminate the tooth brush which is bad for oral health.
Take care, regards

Detailed description on Tooth decay

Hi I'm Dr. Vikash, an Endodontist and Senior Consultant at Ethical Dental and Health Care, Sector-1004, Noida. Today I'm going to discuss about the most common disease in the world, that is Tooth Decay.

Inside everyone's mouth there is a war going on. Our tooth is under attack by various bacterias. These bacterias grow a layer called plaque. It is an invisible battle because bacterias are of same color as our tooth and they hide in hard to reach areas of our mouth like gum line and between tooth. Plaque bacteria attack on sugary tooth. They turn sugar into acid and acid into enamel. This is where our body fights back thanks to saliva. Saliva is full of minerals that replaces the tooth structures dissolved away by plaque acids. It takes about 20mins for the minerals to get back in balance after a meal. But if more minerals are taken away than replaced then enamel collapses and bacteria can get into tissue below. This causes cavity and the tooth is in trouble.

Bacteria will start rotting the dent in the enamel causing tooth decay. WHen decay hits sensitive area you get tooth decay. By now enamel is completely undermined. Although only a dentist can remove bacteria from cavity but you can play your own part in the battle. If you cut off in between meal snacks and regularly remove bacterias with brush and floss, then by this you will be helping your body win the war against tooth decay.

For more information about dental problems you can contact me on Lybrate or walk into my dental clinic, Ethical Dental and Health Care, Sector-1004, Noida.

Dear Lybrate user, Please visit your dentist and get the tooth checked. The pain could be a reaction to the impact and may subside in sometime, or the tooth could be damaged, which will be apparent after an X-ray. There is no tablet that can treat the condition. Please visit your dentist at the earliest.

A six monthly check up visit to your dentist is essential to keep your teeth healthy. Brush twice a day, and ask your dentist to teach you about brushing techniques and interdental aids.

You may need deep cleaning along with surgical, gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

Lasers In Dentistry! What Do I Need To Know?

Lasers In Dentistry! What Do I Need To Know?

When one hears the word lasers, the first thing that comes to mind is Star Wars. If only dentistry was as exciting as Star Wars! So now that we all agree on that, let’s see how lasers are changing dentistry and what we have to look forward to in the future. It’s actually some pretty cool stuff, even if you would probably rather be watching Star Wars.

There are several different types of lasers currently in use in dental clinics today.

Soft Tissue Lasers (Diode):

This is the typical laser you’ll see in a general dental clinic and is also the least expensive costing 1-4 lakh INR. It is only used for cutting soft tissue (ex. gum tissue). This type of laser doesn’t actually use the laser tip to cut tissue. It has a glass fiber than transmits the laser pulse which is charred and then heated up by the laser pulses. It is this heated glass tip that actually does the cutting. It isn’t as efficient in cutting tissue as say a scalpel would be but it makes up for that in the fact that there is little to no bleeding afterwards and the tissue heals beautifully. There are a couple of good applications for this type of laser:

  • Frenectomies (for example with tongue ties or a frenum between your top front teeth that contributes to the teeth wanting to spread apart)
  • Removing a small amount of gum tissue around a tooth before taking an impression for a crown
  • Stopping bleeding
  • Reduction in symptoms for cold sores and ulcers
  • Crown lengthening procedures for exposing tooth structure for crowns
  • Teeth Whitening procedures

Combined Hard and Soft Tissue Lasers (Carbon Dioxide, Neodymium Yttrium Aluminum Garnet aka Nd: YAG, and Er:YAG):

These types of lasers are the more cutting edge side of lasers in dentistry. They have the ability to cut both hard and soft tissue as well as some restorative materials. They can cut teeth, bone, and tissue. Each type has a slightly different application and usefulness. These lasers are also currently very expensive costing upwards of 35 lakh INR in some cases. This has limited their adoption significantly. One of the biggest benefits to these types of lasers is that the amount of anesthetic needed to numb a tooth is much more limited and in some cases not needed at all due to laser pulses effects on the nerve. Some current procedures that are performed with these types of lasers include:

  • Frenectomies – as explained above
  • Gingivectomies  – Excess gum tissue is removed for a better esthetic look
  • Laser assisted new attachment protocol (LANAP) – Periodontist’s often perform this procedure in which the laser is used to clean the pockets around teeth and in many cases it can help to regrow bone around teeth, which was previously impossible
  • Biopsies – Suspicious areas can be easily removed with a laser for evaluation by a pathologist.
  • Crown lengthening surgery – Bone is removed around a tooth to allow more space for a crown to be fitted to a tooth.
  • Preparation of teeth for cavities – These lasers can be used to remove decay and prepare teeth for fillings. It actually cuts the decayed area more readily due to the increased water content of those areas. It can’t cut amalgam or porcelain but does cut tooth structure and composite filling material.

As you must have gauged by now, the lasers find a versatile use in the realm of dentistry. They truly adhere to the "No Cut, No Stitch, No Blood" protocol, thus alleviating the fear of the patient. Next time you visit your dentist, just sneak around and ask for the lasers, if any and their utilities in dentistry. Good and upcoming dental clinics keep their technological standards at par with the international community by incorporating dental lasers in their practices. Give it a shot, at least once!

Hello, bad smell from mouth could be because of deposits or food lodgement between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. It could also be because of cold, acidity, stomach problems, not drinking enough water, not eating or fasting for long intervals. Brush twice daily, floss regularly. You can avoid it by rinsing after every 1-2 hours.

I will suggest you to send pictures of your teeth. Because degree of yellowness has to found out first. And there are different treatment options for how much your teeth yellow. Whether toothpaste or professional cleaning or bleaching is required that can be suggested only after inspection of teeth.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along whitening procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. You may consult me in person too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.
